The Postal Service™ has issued three in a continuing series of revised and new Customer Support Rulings. They are posted on Postal Explorer® (pe.usps.com):

 

Revised

New

§         PS-338, Mobile Barcodes (QR Codes) Printed in Periodicals Publications, includes a new policy statement concerning the use of Mobile Barcodes in a Periodicals publication to determine whether they would be considered advertising or nonadvertising content.

 

§         PS-339, Sealed See-through Pouches in Periodicals Publications, includes a new policy statement concerning perishable matter that may be inserted in copies of a Periodicals publication as unsolicited promotional product samples prepared in completely sealed, sift-proof, see-through pouches.
